Early 1968. Jimi Hendrix @ the UCLA Student Grand Ballroom. I was 22 and majorly into jazz. My next door neighbor was 16 and she wanted desperately to go to this show but her boyfriend was out of town, so she swung it with her folks for me to chaperone her. Oh my! I do recall her standing on her folding chair screaming during Wild Thing. And life was never the same.
